Welcome to the Olympic Week


The whole Olympic Museum team is pleased to host and enjoy with you joyous and unforgettable moments during its big meeting in October.

It’s the chance to share the values of Olympism: practise sport, improve your cultural knowledge, meet new people and make friends! The programme is rich and diverse. Give in to your curiosity and don’t hesitate to try out new experiences. This year, Canada is being honoured. A few months before the Olympic Games in Vancouver, part of the Week’s activities will be devoted to Canadian culture! An occasion for you to “travel”, forget your customs and dive into another universe: perhaps you will find some common points with your way of life; you may even want to visit Canada one day.
See you soon!
